Homeless Students

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines homeless students as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.” The act provides certain protections for homeless students, including student enrollment rights. The Saugus Union School District supports the enrollment, attendance, and achievement of homeless students to ensure they receive equal access to educational opportunities.

If your family is experiencing housing insecurity, please reach out to our homeless liaison for support and guidance by emailing Shannon Cunningham or by calling (661) 294-5300, ext. 5124.
